Whether it's after a long day of skiing......or a long day at work.....this will hit the spot!
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- Pinch ground cloves
- Pinch salt
- Bottle dark rum (in a pinch I’ve also used Captain Morgan’s)Boiling water
In a small bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Refrigerate until almost firm. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into 12 small mugs. If you’re snowed in and your guests can’t make it you can keep the mixture refrigerated. I always like to make a big batch of the mixture to keep on hand, so I’m ready for any drop by guests. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug. Top with boiling water, stir well and serve immediately.
** If you want your drink to be stronger, you can play with the proportions and add more rum and less water. You can also add less rum and more water.
